Drunkard’s Path, the Easy Way

If you’re like me, there are some quilt blocks that just intimidate me.  How do I do this and make it work?   Well, one of those blocks USED to be Drunkard’s Path.  Wanna know how to make it really easy?  Come a little closer and I’ll tell you.  I learned it from a Quilt Show a while back and it really does work.

Take a 12″ piece of fabric.  Then take a coordinating piece the same size and cut it into a circle.  Place the circle on the other piece and sew down the edges of the circle.  Simple.  Here’s the really easy part.  Take the block that you just made, and cut it in half.  Now cut it in half again.  You will see that you have 4 identical blocks that can be used in a variety of ways.  You now have your Drunkard’s Path block ready to go.  You can do this in 12 inch, 9 inch and 6 inch.  Try and see if it works for you.

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
